During a Turning Point USA event, Tucker Carlson ripped into the people running Ron DeSantis' online campaign efforts.
The big matchup between DeSantis and Donald Trump has never really materialized. But their supporters have definitely taken each other on over the internet. And Carlson says that the people backing the Florida governor are particularly loathsome.
The former Fox News host told interviewer Tim Pool, "You really get the sense that Ron DeSantis – who I liked as governor – the people who represent him online are the nastiest, the stupidest, and the most zero-sum people I’ve ever seen in my life, and I don’t think that reflects him, but it’s like, this is kind of small ball."
"And I like him, ok? I think he’s been a good governor, I just want to be clear about that. I know him personally, I like him, but his donor, Ken Griffin, told him to change his view on Ukraine from, “It’s a regional conflict we shouldn’t get involved in,” to, “It’s a super important thing, we should send more money.” One donor got him to change his view and all these so-called conservatives are just supporting that like it’s the most important thing. I feel like, who are these people and what is their problem? Like what is going on with them?"
